A policeman in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, whose identity has not been released, has killed his senior colleague and a recharge card seller named Chidinma over claims of infidelity.
According to eyewitnesses, the incident happened at Karu near CBN quarters in Abuja on Thursday, April 30.
The police corporal, who had been dating the recharge card seller, went to see her on that fateful day and met her in company with another police officer who he immediately accused of sleeping with his girlfriend.
The accusation was said to have made his senior colleague angry who then ordered him to leave the place or he would be dealt with.
This reportedly enraged the police corporal who threatened to kill himself, the girl and the senior officer so that none of them would have the girl.
“True to his threat, he corked his gun and shot the girl first, then the police officer and then shot himself in the head. We are yet to identify the two police officers,” a source within the police in Karu said.
